Thirstdate with a Twist at Sip & Gogh
One of my best friends who recently got back from studying art in Greece wanted to check out the place and having been in touch with the establishment for an earlier feature on the site,
I messaged them and reserved three slots for their evening class the next day.
I think it was a good thing that we went on a Thursday. We came in thirty minutes late for our 8 PM session because of traffic but since we were the only students that evening it wasn't really much of a hassle. We had the place to ourselves. My two other friends who were with me really paint and the other one who tagged along decided to just watch us so that leaves me as the sole person who took to heart the place's motto
"no painting skills required."
We stayed for over two hours and we had so much fun not just painting but drinking and chatting as well. I think the two young artists teaching us were quite intimidated because we were such a noisy bunch but that did not stop them from assisting us whenever we had questions and showing us
how certain things should
I was never confident in my art skills so I never had the chance to enjoy it when I was younger. I also had my father and brother to rescue me for any art related assignments. One great plus for going into the arts is that most of my best friends are into these things and it's my chance to spend time with them doing things they actually like doing. Sip & Gogh made me realize that art can really be fun, it doesn't have to be daunting - as long as you have friends to laugh with and a glass or two of good wine too.
